In an interesting twist, once at the hospital, Kirsty claims she’s the one who’s suffered domestic abuse for months. What will Tyrone do now?

Jenna’s in hot water with her bosses after kissing her physiotherapist patient Sophie. Sophie offers to cover for her in front of the tribunal, making quite an impression on Jenna. In the meantime, the experience leads Jenna to come out to the father she’s only known for a couple of months. It should come as no surprise that kind hearted Lloyd accepts his daughter no matter what, but the effect the kiss has on the rest of her life remains to be seen.
